June Charity

I completed my blocks in June!  (Which is more than I can say for my June cross-stitch box.).

I loved the colors in the June palette and, if I can be honest, I've been looking for an excuse to use these colors for some time now.  And the best part of these blocks is that my husband really liked the colors too.  So as soon as I decide whether to keep the stripe or go more neutral, I'll be headed off to the quilt store to get more slate blue - a fat quarter doesn't make that much background!

So proud!  All my stripes go the same way.

The next question is whether I will be brave enough to try using the tiny triangle pieces I cut off!

Linking up with Let's Bee Social.


  1. Lovely precise work- very clever to get your stripes lined up too!

  2. WOW! These are gorgeous blocks, Rachel. Yes, that background is just the ticket. Looking forward to seeing your progress with this!

  3. These are cute. I love the little bit of pattern on your orange and pink fabrics. Nice work!
